There’s a lot we could say about what this brain researcher realized about the mind during her stroke, and her recovery. One point is that we have many different modalities with which to perceive the world. Whether we define our self by the limit of our bodies, or as a field of consciousness, changes how and what we perceive. Jill Bolte Taylor experienced a stroke. As a brain researcher she got to experience more than just the brain, but also the mind, consciousness, perception, and emotions.
It’s been brought to my attention that Dr Jill Bolte Taylor has written a book that relates her experience. If you are interested in learning more about the details of her experience you can find it at Amazon.
